Discovering romance during the Christmas season is more magical due to the looming hardship of World War II. The three Turner siblings take a chance on love when the future is uncertain in these three connected novellas. Set in 1940s Lafayette, Indiana, Where Treetops Glisten tells the tale of Abigail, Pete, and Merry Turner – each whom faces the uncertainty of life during wartime and relies on personal faith and God's leading to find lasting love and enduring hope for the days ahead.

“White Christmas” by Cara Putman follows a candy cane-making Purdue student with a vow to avoid romantic entanglements and the stoic farm boy dedicated to saving his family home who desperately needs the help the Turners can provide.

Sarah Sundin's “I'll Be Home for Christmas” tells the story of a fighter pilot running on empty, a lonely widow, and a little girl searching for what she has lost. Will an unusual Christmas gift fill their hearts again?

Finally, Tricia Goyer's novella, “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” follows a combat nurse offering care and cheer to injured soldiers on the front lines as Christmas nears. When her patients and the Dutch villagers discover it is her birthday, they work together to give her a great gift – a reason to believe in love again.

Lately, I have read and loved several different novella collections, but Where Treetops Glisten, with contributions by Tricia Goyer, Cara Putman and Tricia Goyer, really stands out in my mind. I think this is the first collection I have encountered where the characters actually connect and know each other. Each novella remains entirely its own as the Turner siblings experience their individual and unique romances, but with each heartwarming tale, I learned more and more about the Turner family as a whole, which I found particularly great for a holiday-themed collection. Overall, the collection is a sweet and perfect combination of what I love to find in the books I read – romance and history – with an added bit of holiday cheer and the associated warm feelings. I really enjoyed reading Where Treetops Glisten and would definitely recommend it for readers of historical romance in this quickly approaching holiday season.
